Minion DHR II 3C/EXO/TR Tire - 27.5 Plus by Maxxis
Designed with paddle knobs running down the center for decreased rolling resistance and increased braking power on steep trails, the Maxxis Minion DHR II 3C/EXO/TR 27. 5 Plus Tire is an optimal choice for running on the rear of your plus-sized trail bike. Unlike the Minion DHF, which can be run as an aggressive tire on the front or rear, the Minion DHR II is purposely suited for the rear for its powerful braking capabilities when you're descending on steep trails. This particular version features a high-volume casing that allows you to drastically lower its pressure for greater bump compliance and loads of traction on the trail. This particular version brings even greater traction to your plus-sized trail rig with its 3C Maxx Terra compound, comprised of three different compounds of rubber that are progressively softer towards the upper layers touching the trail surface. Ultimately, this produces an insanely grippy tire with heightened levels of grip and overall control on the trail, albeit with a slight penalty in rolling resistance and tread longevity. This means you'll feel like you have unbelievable grip when you're riding at high speeds, braking on sketchy sections of trail, and railing corners. EXO protection gives you additional resistance to pesky flats caused from abrasive trail surfaces, such as sharp rocks and thorny vegetation. It's a great feature to have on a plus-sized tires, which are prone to getting flats due to their lower riding pressures and wider trail footprint. Plus, EXO protection gives you this added protection without a major increase in rolling weight, so you won't notice the reinforcement slowing you down on long climbs.
